Loughborough’s newest luxury care home is recruiting for up to 50 roles ahead of its eagerly awaited launch this September.

Woodthorpe Lodge, on John Boden Way, requires a wide variety of talented care staff, front of house representatives and kitchen and domestic staff to provide first-rate residential and dementia care for up to 66 people.

The home’s operator, Ideal Carehomes, offers a genuine career ladder, as well as a host of training opportunities and benefits for passionate individuals who want to work within the care sector. 

 Successful applicants to Woodthorpe Lodge will have access to some of the most innovative and supportive care technology in the industry, not to mention the chance to work within the stunning £10m home which boasts a cinema room, garden room, on-site convenience store, cafe and landscaped  gardens.      

 Just last week, Minister of State for Care, Caroline Dinenage MP, visited sister home, Handley House in York, and expressed her delight at Ideal Carehomes’ extensive training programme which enables staff to provide the best possible care.

 She showed particular interest in the group’s #thisisme project which increases engagement between staff and residents and matches them into a ‘buddy’ system based on similar preferences and interests.

 Woodthorpe Lodge’s registered care manager, Tracy Taylor, said: “We are very excited to be commissioning the staff team for the home and are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are looking for fulfilling careers within care. From experienced caring professionals, to those who may be only thinking about entering this sector, there are a whole host of exciting permanent roles available.

 “It’s really important to us that we promote a career in care as a positive choice – there is plenty of scope for progression for the right people and we provide all the training and support required. Each day is different, not to mention rewarding and enjoyable. The home itself will look like a five-star hotel and will provide a beautiful place to work in every day.”

 Staff will complete an intensive induction period before beginning their role in earnest.  Each resident at Woodthorpe Lodge will have a dedicated care plan co-ordinator and enjoy full and varied activities and trips for an inclusive price. 

 Woodthorpe Lodge will be holding public open days in September where local residents can call in to have a look around the home’s facilities.
